Default The Ring (Mag)

Does anyone here buy the Magazine "The Ring"?
I have started to get it lately, but havnt seen the latest at the newsagent.
I know the stuff is like 4 months old, but i dont mind the read.

My first one was with JC Chavez on the cover circa 89 or 90, and didn't miss too many issues from then until 98. Have a box load from about 96 onwards I recently opened and am reading a few, some of the articles can be quite funny in hindsight.
I just bought the Nov 07 issue for $24.50, have to say am not super impressed to be paying that price for a magazine thats arrived by sea. Do they still print KO, World Boxing, Boxing Illustrated, International Boxing Digest or what would be today Boxing '07? Hard to believe there were that many back then, surely some are still around?

the fist isnt half bad

they ran an awesome story on sonni michael angelo a few months back that was a great read; he has lead a very tough life. Kinda reminded me of the story of Edison Miranda

Yeah, I basically bought every mag available for nearly a decade. Had the Fist from the very first issue when Grantlee Kieza first published it, guess its fair to say the scene was pretty healthy back then. Half the challenge nowadays is finding somewhere that stocks it.
I do remember the Ring seemed to double in price at one stage, was paying $7 or $8 then the next issue came out with a $16 price tag. Now that its over $20 I'm finding it hard to justify buying it, especially when its so stale.
I'll have a look through all my back issues and see if theres any I want to part with, don't think I have any before 95 as I'm pretty sure I left them all in Melbourne when I moved West. Spewing cos I had every issue after Douglas beat Tyson, am sure they might be worth a bit. Do remember taking out a Douglas poster and putting it on my dartboard for a year. The follies of youth.
